5 reasons why Ciel x Sebastian have the best master-servant relationship
I don't really get Sebastian and Ciel's relationship. Someone help? - I'm not sure if Because in the anime they don't question and answer in the Kuroshitsuji club. Demons can't feel love and it's pretty clear Sebastian's playing mind games with Ciel to try and push him even further into the darkness. Plus, pedophilia, not. Aug 13, Ciel gets his revenge, and Sebastian gets to claim his soul. But as an intuitive individual, I can't help but find a deeper meaning than what is.
Yet, Sebastian is willing to do anything Ciel orders, even when it's apparently impossible. Let's not forget one important matter though; Sebastian is a demon. His nature is wicked by definition, and so even though he accomplishes every thing Ciel orders, there are moments where he takes the time to enjoy teasing Ciel. For example, he puts intentionally Ciel in a dangerous situation, just to be sure to save him at the last moment. Like for example when Ciel and Sebastian were investigating about the Circus, during the Book of Circus series, and Ciel asked him to free the snakes after the first-stringers.
Can you guess what Sebastian did? He freed the snakes, yes, but when Ciel was still hidden in a tent trying to get a clue about Joker and the others. And yet, Ciel found himself face to face with a snake, and was saved by Doll. Of course, when he asked Sebastian for explanation, he justified himself saying that he just followed Ciel's order to free the snakes after the first-stringers, and that he wouldn't have let him die, no matter what! Buy now Sebastian is a demon; he is tricky, wicked and without a single trace of human sentimentalism.
He is cold, and act without really understanding human pain and struggles. That's a coherence to be expected. Ciel is just a kid, and he is still year-old. Looking at the picture, at a first glance we would expect a trembling little boy who doesn't actually know how to step forward after the big tragedy he had to face when he was only a little child, and since he was so lost, he just thought of forming a contract with a devil.
Well, that couldn't be more wrong.

If Sebastian is evil by nature, Ciel is even nastier. Is it his past's fault? That doesn't change the fact that Ciel kills without regrets, following a logic that only he himself can understand. What's more, he is just as cold as Sebastian. There are moment when he shows a little bit of his emotions, but then again he hardens and goes on.
Ciel is like an old cynical man hardened by the time, and yet he is still so young. So he is just the perfect match for Sebastian, who can maneuver Ciel the way he likes. The third reason takes us directly to the fourth. Let us explain this.
Sebastian is bound to be loyal to Ciel, and accomplishes every single thing Ciel asks, even when it's all about Ciel's tantrum. Looking closely, though, it's impossible not to notice how much Ciel relies on Sebastian. Not just as a butler, of course, but even when it's about important decision. That's probably one of the few moments where Ciel shows a little his actual age.
Sebastian doesn't have to struggle to deviate Ciel's mind, they just find themselves thinking the same.
Ciel and Sebastian Relationship
Ciel asks for Sebastian's advice, and their thoughts strangely seem to correspond. When they don't, it's all up to Sebastian to give a little push that will make Ciel take the decision his butler wants him to take. So the truth is that even though the master is Ciel, the real master moving behind the scenes is Sebastian. He swore, by contract, to help Ciel finding the culprits who killed their parents, so he will put all his efforts to accomplish his duty and eat Ciel's soul in the end.
It's a fair price to pay, letting Ciel think that he is the master!
Another undeniable truth is that Ciel couldn't do anything without Sebastian. It's not only about cooking food, or ironing the newspapers, or even dressing up.
The thing is is that Ciel is a strategist, and very clever. When it comes to more practical stuff, though, he is totally clumsy. I do also believe that Ciel began to form at least a slight emotional connection to his demon butler.

If not that, I can't deny the extreme trust he puts into Sebastian. In Sebastian's perspective or standpoint, he processes an ever growing respect for his young master. I mean Ciel is absolutely brilliant for a young teenager. Not to mention, I believe Ciel to be a truly damaged and twisted individual. I remember back to the first anime episode where he allows his guest to roast in an oven, commands his butler to allow countless innocents to a heartbreaking fate at the ending of Book of Circus, and just the way he mercilessly defeats his enemies.
I think Sebastian's respect stems from his demon nature. Now I say all this because that is my opinion and interpretation of the duo's connection, and I believe that the bond was written in a way to be left to the imagination of the reader or audience. It is something I truly love when authors do as it encourages a greater involvement for those who read or watch.
I know this is a bit short, but it's 1 AM, and I'm a wee bit tired. I would love to know if you agree?
